The Law Foundation of Ontario announced that it is seeking nominations for the Guthrie Award, its signature award to recognize access to justice champions.

The Guthrie Award recognizes individuals who have a significant and proven track record of furthering access to justice. The award was created in 1996 to honour H. Donald Guthrie who served as a foundation trustee for 21 years, including 13 years as chair.

Guthrie Award recipients have come from many directions — the judiciary, private bar, community legal clinics, academia and nonprofit organizations. 

Nominations are being accepted until March 11, 2022. Go here for details on the streamlined nomination process.
